QA Engineer

Abstract - Remote

Posted 11 days ago

About Abstract


Abstract is a design workflow platform for teams to version, manage, and collaborate on Sketch files. Since launching in July 2017, over 5,000 design teams across 75 countries have adopted Abstract, including teams from Shopify, Cisco, Intuit, Spotify, Salesforce, Instacart, OpenTable, and more.



At Abstract, we are actively working to build a diverse and inclusive organization. Here, diversity includes age, economic class, educational background, ethnic variance, familial status, gender, gender expression, gender identity, marital status, national origin, religious affiliation, sex, sexual orientation, transgender status, or veteran status.



Abstract is headquartered in San Francisco but many of our teams and roles are remote-first (US-based only at this time). If you have a passion for rolling up your sleeves, building new programs, and have a strong, team-player mentality, we’d love to hear from you!



About the Role


Abstract is looking for a talented Sr. QA Engineer with both automated and manual test experience to help us improve our Sketch plugin and Mac desktop application. At Abstract we develop desktop and web applications that help teams design with confidence by providing a version control system and collaboration platform focused on design artifacts.



In this role, you will run point on all testing and QA activities, design a QA strategy and process for manual and automated testing, and execute your plan while working with the greater engineering, product and support teams. Our engineers work in a mix of JavaScript (Electron), Objective-C, Go and C++. Familiarity with any of these languages will help you be successful in this role.



We're more interested in your ability to learn and solve problems than your specific programming language experience.



In a typical week as a QA Engineer, you will:



  • Be a passionate evangelist for high-quality standards in every phase of the development process

  • Work with our Support team to triage bugs as they come in and document detailed steps to reproduce

  • Find, isolate, document, track defects and validate fixes provided by engineers. Success is measured by a reduction in the number of bugs getting to production

  • Build, run and maintain automated functional, integration and regression tests to help improve software quality

  • Author and maintain QA documentation, and help to enforce as needed

Practical skills you'll need for success:



  • Solid knowledge of quality assurance best practices and methodologies

  • An understanding that a great QA Engineer works collaboratively with both engineering and support teams

  • A product-centric mindset and the ability to ask questions in order to improve the product, not only in its technical implementation but also in how well it is serving the needs of our customers

  • You have a strong reputation for accountability - your colleagues know they can rely on you

  • Detail oriented, investigative, and a good problem solver

  • You can clearly discuss and explain complex technical topics

  • When things inevitably break, you eagerly jump in to diagnose the issues

Bonus points if you have:



  • Knowledge of and experience in other technologies that support a modern cloud-based software service (Docker, Amazon ECS, Kubernetes, etc.)

  • Experience with common software development methodologies like Agile/Scrum or Kanban and tools such as Jira

  • Expertise in one or more major testing platforms (e.g. Selenium)

  • Worked on small teams and are comfortable wearing multiple hats every single day

Benefits


At Abstract, we offer resources that emphasize personal and familial wellbeing. We provide 99% healthcare coverage, including dental, vision, and life insurance. We offer 10 weeks parental leave, unlimited paid-time off, and flexible working arrangements. Additional perks include dependent care and health care FSA as well as commuter benefits for SF office employees.


To help employees plan for the future, we're able to offer competitive pay and a 401k. New teammates receive a MacBook Pro.


We are a distributed team and we are able to offer US-based remote employment for most roles. We offer travel opportunities for company meetings, team meet-ups, and the occasional conference.

Notes


Though we're a distributed team, we're currently only able to hire US-based candidates.
